    Bad Earbuds

    I really don't like these, I had another set before and it might just be that I have odd shaped ears but I just can't seem to get them to stay in. I got these for running and they fall out when I'm just sat still so no chance when I actually run. Very disappointed

    Great, but now won't turn on!

    I've had my Beatsx since August (3-4 months). I really love them. However, they now won't turn on after charging. Did a quick search of the web, and finding this seems to be a problem with the product - just check the forums. Expect better quality for the price paid.

    Easily damaged by moisture

    My second pair now being sent back awaiting replacement. Use these most of the time running here in the Pacific NW and with the rain and sweat the moisture gets in through the power button. These buds sound great to me fit well and don't fall out / snug and have very good life on each charge but it appears I'm not going to be able to use these in workout situations indoors or out. Too bad.

    Doesn’t work properly after time

    I didn’t drop them, over charger them, no water damage, nothing. But for some reason after not even 5 months, they don’t stay on. When I try to turn them on, the light flashes and it won’t turn on. I even reset it multiple times, and it still won’t work. Not happy.

    Maybe I have a bad pair?

    Does anyone else experience static in the background at ALL times? If it's not a static sound it is a very loud chime that requires me to adjust the two black pieces on each side of my neck. I almost have to have them near my Adam's apple in order for the static to go away.

    I love the design and all, but it is annoying to have to hear static every time.

    Disappointed

    I wanted to really love these because the design is beautiful. Easy pairing with my iPhone 7plus. Unfortunately the sound quality is terrible. It sounded distant and as soon as I raised the volume it sounded “tinny” and distorted. Very disappointed with this product.

    Was working until...

    Well, I bought my BeatsX about 4 months ago, and they performed very well... Once while I was walking outside I wanted to turn my BeatsX on by simply holding the start button, but they started flashing and even hard resets didn't help...

    its ok for people that dont like bass

    being a product from Mr Dre i was expecting a much better sound quality, the bass more in particular, it does not beat the Logitech Wireless headset that also has very good battery life in addition that it is half the price. I am not kidding i am going to give it to someone in my family and i will keep n using the logitech device. My main purpose is when i go to the gym and i like Hip Hop music with a great bass sound.

    Poor sound quality

    Pros: Holds a long charge and comfortable
    Cons: Very poor sound quality and basically if your earphones are for listening to Music and Videos avoid this product, they are not worth the price.

    'Scuse Me, I'm Sorry

    But there's NO WAY these Beats X are better than the standard Apple Headphones. I've been using both the Beats X and the headphones that came with my iphone 6 and there's a stark difference between the sound. Beats X can't pick up any bass notes and it's not as clear. I couldn't figure out how to change that quality.

    The apple headphones make you feel like you're surrounded in the music. Beats X feel like I'm listening to music through someone's telephone. As if the music is playing on their TV in the background. It's distant.

    Praises that they are Bluetooth/wireless. The earpieces fit well, the packaging was great but the sound on Beats X does not compare to the standard apple headphones. No Lie

    Try Again Beats X

    Unfortunate / Bummed 🙁

    Although i LOVE the entire Beats brand these earphones did not live up to the hype as they usually do. Given that i had the white pair keeping them clean was clearly going to be an everyday thing. But that's not where my problem lied. These earphone FAILED to stay in my ears. Now maybe it could just be my ears but i was constantly having to adjust or put them back in my ears. I tried placing on the other ear pieces to hold them in place and even that didn't work. I only had them for a day and tried them for the day. They did not work. I was quickly saddened.

    Disappointed

    I'm so glad i got these beats x for free. I bought an ipad and through apple, these came free. I took them out of the package all happy to use them, but once i started listening to music, they were absolutely horrible. The sound is so tinny. There's absolutely no bass as well. I tried changing my music settings to bass booster, pop, acoustic and all that fun stuff but nothing changed the sound of these headphones. I'm so disappointed in the quality of these considering they are beats.

    Design Great... Sound not so Great

    I really like the design and the fact they are wireless but the sound is also very important to me. I love a deep bass and these head phones just don't have it. I wouldn't say tinny but definitely no bass. I had Sony's a few years ago and they were better sounding than these. My last set was a Bose set and they were awesome but not wireless. Unfortunately, one of my kids borrowed them and ruined an ear piece. I am really trying to like these, but it's not working. I would kick myself if I didn't take them back and unfortunately pay more money for a better sounding set, probably Bose. I bought them through Apple online so I will definitely take them back to the store and try them out first. Hope this review helps someone.

    Great Design, Garbage Product.

    The design is excellent. I love the magnets to hold them to your neck. I love the charging medallion and the volume rocker. The earbuds fit comfortably and you can easily work outside in an active environment with the earphones in. Probably not good for working out (though I haven't tried yet) because they aren't THAT snug, but are still pretty good. But the sound... wow. The sound is incredibly poor for allegedly being excellent sounding earphones... and the price. Bass is practically non-existent. Vocals are not properly balanced. Rock just sounds like a mash of sound. The EarPods that come with the iPhone sound much better. I'll give them this though, the cushions do an excellent job preventing outside noise from entering your ear so you can mow and do yard work and still hear music just fine. I even chainsawed with these things in. Too bad the sound just isn't very good. I'll be using my Bose Soundlink headphones if I want to enjoy my music the way it's intended to sound.

    Great features, but mediocre sound

    Had I paid for these, I'd return them. For $150, I would expect and demand good, clear, crisp sound, but these are just another well-conceived but poorly executed product from Beats. Nothing I've found so far has measured up to my ancient Etymotics buds, but the cords are literally falling apart on them. The Beats are mostly going to be useful to me for plane rides, as the isolation is very good, making them impractical (and illegal) for driving - I'll use my Apple buds for that, as I can get good sound and still hear what's going on around me to some extent. If Apple really wants to impress me, pull Beats's reputation for mediocre products out of the gutter, and include some extra ear tips that don't completely block out all ambient sound.

    Sound is great - on/off functionality annoyingly bad

    Great sound and basic design but horrible implementation of the on/off functionality (makes you wonder if they have done any usability testing).

    Pros:
    - Great sound
    - Design is minimalist but good (earphones clasp together through magnets)
    - Nice range of colors
    - Battery quick charge is fantastic (charges to 2 hours in 5 minutes)
    - Uses lightening cable to charge (great if you have an iPhone)

    Con: Everything about the on/off functionality
    - There is no auto off feature! You stop listening but forget to turn off your headset and the battery drains because this thing stays on. Auto-off is not rocket science and implemented in many other, cheaper Bluetooth headsets.
    - The on/off button is flimsy (it's a very small push button that sits flush on one of the battery enclosures. This makes the button hard to find and press when you wear the headset.
    - There is a pairing delay of several seconds. Compared with the flush push on/off button I am never quite sure - did I switch it on? Let's press it again. Oh no I turned it off.
    - The on/off notification is a beep!?!?!? Come on Apple! I had a cheap $20 Bluetooth headset that was able to tell me "your headset is connected to your iPhone"

    Seriously; I find the on/off flaws so annoying that it spoils the whole product.
    A typical experience I am going through at least once a week goes like this: I put the ear pieces in, search for the on-off switch with my right hand. Try using my finger nail to make sure I really pressed it. Wait a few seconds. Nothing happens. I press it again. Nothing. Frustrated I take them off to see what I am doing just to realize that the battery is drained because I forgot to turn them off when I stopped listening a few hours ago.

    The on/off switch i could get used to. Not having an auto-off feature is simply unforgivable. I would not buy them again.
